The Green Bay Packers have a plan at quarterback: Jordan Love. However, they still have other questions all throughout the roster that need to be addressed. One these is safety, which, up to this point, has been an under-the-radar need. Adrian Amos and Rudy Ford are both free agents and may not be back. As the team looks to add both quality players and depth to the position, they are meeting with Tarvarius Moore, a free agent safety who previously played for the San Francisco 49ers. Aaron Wilson reported the news on Twitter:
No immediate deal for #Packers and #49ers free agent safety Tarvarius Moore, per a league source, as visit continues.

How Would Tarvarius Moore Fit on the Green Bay Packers?
As mentioned, the Packers are in desperate need of safety depth. However, if they are looking for a player who can be a starting safety for them (which they are), Moore is not likely going to be that guy. Last season, Moore played just 5% of San Francisco’s defensive plays while playing 66% of their special teams snaps. In fact over the course of his career, he has played more special teams snaps (1,096) than he has defensive snaps (1,046).
That being said, Moore had some success as a spot starting safety for the 49ers in 2021. That year, he played 16 games (started eight of them), totaled 52 tackles, a pass deflection, and forced a fumble. On the other hand, opposing quarterbacks had a 156.2 passer rating when targeting him that year, so perhaps it was not all that successful. This glaring stat may indicate that he is being signed for the special teams unit and not for a starting safety spot.
